RECIPE: Cinnamon Bun Muffins

I am ALWAYS on the search for new recipes for uses for cinnamon. Seems like I crave it more than any other seasoning or spice. I found this recipe on Elana's Pantry and just couldn't wait to try it! Who doesn't love cinnamon rolls!?
Cinnamon Topping:
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2. Combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  • 3. In a large bowl combine oil, agave, eggs and vanilla. (I used my immersion blender)
  • 4. Blend dry ingredients into wet and spoon about 1/4 cup into greased or lined muffin cups. (I use my MISTO sprayer to lightly spray grape seed oil into silicone cups.)
  • 5. Spoon cinnamon topping onto the muffins.

6. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes on center rack of oven.
  • 7. Cool completely before frosting them with Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting
Makes 9 - 10  muffins
Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting
4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened to room temperature
3 tablespoons organic Agave
3 tablespoons Half and Half (The recipe calls for heavy cream, but we didn't have any. Half and Half works just fine!)

A dash of Cinnamon for good measure!

  1. To make frosting combine cream cheese and agave in a medium bowl until well blended
  2. Whip in cream until frosting is nice and thick
  3. Spread over Cinnamon Bun Muffins 
  4. Serve
